iGeo introduces motivated and talented under-represented high school juniors and seniors to the geosciences. For three days iGeo participants explore educational opportunities, live like a college student, and meet other high school students from around the state.
Live the college life
iGeo participants attend classes, participate in group activities, and tour the College of Geosciences and Texas A&M. Learn about Texas A&M by living on campus. Geosciences professors lead workshops in geosciences disciplines, conduct labs, and discuss career choices. Current College of Geosciences students serve as peer leaders during the program.
Students experience college life firsthand by rooming with current geosciences students in residence halls. The iGeo Weekend Program ends with a tailgate celebration.
